Recent San Diego vacation rental reviews

This home was very nice and a block from Mission Beach, which was quick and easy to walk to. The home was clean and well maintained and in a quiet area, which made for a very relaxing trip. Walkable to bodegas, coffee, and it was easy to get DoorDash/groceries delivered to the house. I would give this home a 4.9/5 with a few notes for improvement but absolutely recommend staying here and would say here again. A few notes: the sheets on the beds were polyester which doesn't breathe well so can make for sweaty sleep; the pillows on the beds were very, very flat; there were no condiments/ingredient essentials in the kitchen like olive oil, salt, pepper, etc. (the listing did not say this was included, but it would have been a nice addition instead of having to purchase these pantry staples for a 4 day trip); there were a lot of flies around the front of the home because in the back the garbage cans were not locked and had a lot of excess trash in them that I assume came from others dumping their trash in the cans in the back alley.

This place was amazing, it was so comfortable to be here great for my family , spectacular views , check in was easy and exiting The only thing we all had problems with is the Wi-Fi. Not a great connection at all Other than that would definitely rent again if available

Literally one block from the beach. Everything is brand new in the house. I’m not sure if are the first ones who stayed there but it was absolutely spotless. Amazing roof deck as well

Explore our San Diego, CA vacation rentals

Break out from the humdrum with a trip to sunny California. San Diego vacation rentals offer a convenient home base while you explore nearby city attractions, stunning beaches, and dive into the food scene. Welcome to California, there’s something here for everyone.

Where is San Diego, CA?

Just 13 miles from the seaside beach community of La Jolla, our San Diego beach house vacation rentals offer access to a cosmopolitan, vibrant city environment, but with exciting outdoor attractions like hiking, biking, fishing, and of course surfing, right nearby.

Outdoor Activities in San Diego

There are 27 miles of car-free, winding, paved bike paths that loop around the activity-rich area of Mission Bay (great for families) and the Bayshore Bikeway includes 25 miles of scenic bike lanes along San Diego Bay. Whatever your skill level, you can find an adventure on two wheels —and a few photo ops on the way.

When you leave your vacation rental in the morning, you can explore the canyons, mountains, and deserts on two feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-groomed, whether you take off for an easy Sunset Cliffs beach walk or a three-mile vertical climb up Cowles Mountain. If you're looking to catch a wave, San Diego boasts big swells and waves, guaranteed to have you hanging ten before you know it.

Things to Do in San Diego

Mission Bay boasts one of the largest aquatic parks in the world, so bring your water skis, kayaks, and fishing pole. With over 90 museums in San Diego County alone, this is a haven for arts and culture enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon walking around Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Museum of Art, Model Railroad Museum, and more), Old Town San Diego, and if you have kids, be sure to stop by the New Children's Museum downtown or the world-famous San Diego Zoo

With an impossibly tasty food scene, it’s only a matter of where to start in San Diego. Stop by a corner taco stall on your way to the beach, dig into fresh seafood by the water, or head to Hodad’s Downtown for a locally-loved giant burger. Don’t forget to cool down with ice cream while window shopping on the boardwalk.

At 120 miles south of Los Angeles, San Diego offers a gentle Mediterranean climate with plenty of sun and cool ocean breezes. The city boasts 70 miles of gorgeous beachy coastline, making it the perfect location for a memorable California getaway for the whole family, a romantic weekend, or even a surfing trip with friends. Browse beachfront homes, high-rise condos, or search stays by amenities for your home base in this sun-drenched coastal city.
